Caring for special places is at the heart of the National Trust's work in the north-west. We look after some of Britain's most cherished spaces, 365 days of every year. But to keep those places special, for ever, for everyone, we need your help. Your donations are essential to ensure that our wildlife and historic buildings can be enjoyed by generations to come
Look after our fells
Have you ever triumphed at summiting a Lakeland hill, only to be dismayed at the eroded descent path before you on the other side? Erosion is not a new problem but we can make a difference.
Support our reds
We’re asking for your help this winter to develop homes for future generations of red squirrels at Formby. We must raise £1,600 to plant half a hectare of mixed conifers and £2,400 for new fencing to shield young trees.
Houses need help too
Our historic homes are part of the living north-west landscape, but ensuring they can remain open for all will depend on raising funds for essential care and repairs
Quarry Bank was part of one of the largest cotton spinning businesses in the UK. Masterminded by Samuel Greg, and his wife, Hannah, they built a unique factory community that helped Britain drive the Industrial Revolution. Before it's too late, we want to share the stories of the mill - its owners, workers and apprentices.
